I think this cartoon by the Star's Theo Moudakis neatly sums up what Stephen Harper's Con regime is doing to our image abroad.
Making us look small, cheap, shabby. And like Britain's
For the Cons can try to downplay the embassy move, call it no big deal, just a way to save money. But as I explained the other night, it's actually a huge deal. For the Cons in Britain.
The move by Eurosceptic Mr Hague is seen as a counter to the EU’s fast-expanding European External Action Service, which is setting up offices in the US and other major countries. It is seen by some UK diplomats as a direct threat to Britain’s standing as a major world power.
The ghastly old blimps in the Cameron Conservative Party who are trying to stick it to the Europeans for being too left, too social democratic, too liberal, or just too woggy.
‘There is a saying in the British diplomatic corps that “the French want to do us over, the Germans want to lord it over us and the Italians are all over the place”.
And are counting on their faithful
Which makes what Great Banana Republic Leader had to say in the Commons today absolutely hilarious.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper dismissed criticism Tuesday over his decision to bypass the United Nations General Assembly during a trip to New York this week, arguing that Canadians know he has provided a strong and “independent” approach to foreign policy.
Especially since while he's in New York. snubbing the U.N., picking up that religious bling, and no doubt stuffing his face with Krispy Kreme donuts, or trying to set-up a menage-a-trois with the Koch brothers.
He'll also be receiving his latest instructions from Benjamin Netanyahu...

On how to undermine Obama, help Mitt Romney win the election, bomb Iran, and start the Third World War or the Christian Armageddon.
Oh boy. How low have we fallen?
Allan Gregg, the veteran pollster and commentator, caused a bit of a stir recently when, in a speech at Carleton University, he accused the Harper government of making an Orwellian assault on democracy and reason.
Given his drawing of Orwellian parallels, Mr. Gregg will surely be amused that Mr. Harper is receiving an award this week for being a champion of freedom and democracy.
And the good news? How low has Great Sellout Leader fallen?
As Parliament began its fall sitting last week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's disapproval rating hit 50%, a new poll provided exclusively to Sun News Network shows. It's the first time pollster Abacus Data of Ottawa has found the prime minister to be so unpopular with so many Canadians.
"When your unfavourable rating hits 50%, that says they don't just dislike your policies, they dislike you," Abacus CEO David Coletto said.
You see, it may appear that he is getting away with it. But he really isn't. It's the slow death of a thousand wounds. By the time he arrives at the next election he'll be crawling on his belly, squealing like a pig and/or singing God Save Me.
Oink Oink Oink Oinky Oink.
And the best part?
I thought we would have to spend the next three years degrading him. Before thrashing him at the polls, packing him into a crate, and shipping him back to Alberta.
But who knew we would be so lucky eh?
To have him degrade himself....
